Janet Weis Writers Institute Scholarships
Ten scholarships of up to $5,000 will be offered to first-year creative writing majors based on the quality of their writing portfolios.
The creative writing faculty will select the winners for these renewable awards that will be added to any academic merit scholarship previously received.
These scholarships will be continued throughout all four years the student is enrolled at Susquehanna as long as the recipient remains a creative writing major and maintains a 3.2 grade point in the major.
Candidates are encouraged to submit portfolios of 10-12 pages within two weeks of applying to the university, but no later than Feb. 1.
